Those who dream of owning a winery and their own vineyard don’t need to move to Napa to make their dreams come true.
The Amherst Farm Winery went on sale Wednesday morning for $ 950,000.
“This property is perfect for a buyer who wants to live on site and operate a farming business,” said Greg Stutsman, Broker / Owner of Brick & Mortar. “The owner would be happy to see the property continue as a winery, but ultimately that decision will be up to a future owner. “
It includes a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom farmhouse and covers 2 hectares. The property also includes vineyards, an expansive rear terrace, a wine production room or conditioning room and lounge.
“The property has a long history in Amherst, including being home to popular local restaurants, The Rusty Scupper and, later, Seasons,” Stutsman said. “Set on 2 acres of land with vineyards and ample parking, the property’s signature feature is the generously sized post and beam barn attached and located behind the farm residence.”
If the new owner decides to continue with the winery, they will have a very short ride, the list jokes.
“Plans have been made to complete the winery with a distillery, and the property has potential for marijuana research / cultivation businesses, among others,” the listing states.
The current owner has “other projects elsewhere in the country that they plan to focus on,” Stutsman told MassLive, which is why they have decided to sell.
Yet, they are not planning to leave just yet.
“The Amherst Farm Winery continues to operate normally and the owner plans to be at the Big E this fall, where visitors will have the chance to taste wines,” said Stutsman.
